Вечная память! Vechnaya Pamyat! Eternal memory!

Today a Good Shepherd passed into eternity.

Bishop Michael Hrynchyshyn, C.SS.R., R.I.P.
In a blessed falling asleep,
grant, O Lord, eternal rest
unto Thy departed servant
Bishop Michael
and make his memory to be eternal!
Вечная память! Вечная память! Вечная память!
Vechnaya Pamyat! Vechnaya Pamyat! Vechnaya Pamyat!
Memory eternal! Memory eternal! Memory eternal!

Give rest, O Christ, to thy servant with thy saints:
where sorrow and pain are no more;
neither sighing but life everlasting.
Thou only art immortal, the Creator and Maker of man:
and we are mortal formed from the dust of the earth,
and unto earth shall we return:
for so Thou didst ordain,
when Thou created me saying:
“Dust thou art and unto dust shalt thou return.”
All we go down to the dust;
and weeping o’er the grave we make our song:
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
